Today I tried to do some jumping. But Twister was being lazy and not picking up his feet. And I was waiting too long instead of being too far ahead like I usually am. Basically we couldn't get our shit together.
So I took him out into the big field to do figure-8s at the trot. I just wanted to work on a big forward trot. I'm constantly like legleglegLEGLEGLEG because he was so LAZYYYY. Finally we were moving out a bit better and he kept breaking into the canter. So I decided we'd work on our simple changes too.
And we had the best canter yet. It was collected and under control. And beastly. I was like where the hell did this canter come from and why the hell am I just now getting this?! I did simple changes on a figure-8 for a while and then decided to get the camera. He was getting tired by this time but I think I have a little footage to prove that actually happened.
I cleaned stalls and played with the dogs and built up my xc jump in the back field. Now it just needs to dry out a bit before we can give it a go!
love that jump!! and that canter!! yay for fun rides :)ReplyDelete
